Master of Science in Accountancy

General

Program Description

The Master of Science in Accountancy at Boise State University is designed to prepare candidates for a career within the broader framework of business decision making.

The primary role of the program is to prepare students for careers in public accounting as certified public accountants (CPAs). The program focuses on the audit and attests functions of public accounting.

The complexity of today's business environment requires public accountants to have expertise in accounting principles and procedures and to understand the financial, managerial, legal, and tax ramifications of business transactions. CPAs must also be able to clearly communicate with clients and affected third parties, and with employees. Because of their financial expertise, CPAs frequently serve as advisors for a broad range of business decisions. Students will develop their technical expertise and business knowledge needed to provide these services.

Graduates of the program are expected to become partners and owners of their own public accounting firms.

Students may also pursue a more detailed study of taxation through the Master of Science in Accountancy, Taxation emphasis.
